Unfortunately, I didn't get a successful boot.  I didn't try appending
the VGA chunk
yet.  Maybe I'll need to, in order to have any hope of debugging though,
since I'm not
getting any serial console output at all.

True, I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

First I'll need to be able to boot, period.  So far, what I've done is

1.  Subversion checkout of latest buildrom
2.  make menuconfig, specifying Tyan S2892, 32-bit LAB
3.  make

Do I need to do further configuration (Config.lb etc)?  I thought that
the menuconfig
took care of everything.  Maybe that was wishful thinking..
